A recent study from the Institute of Biophysics, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Beijing, China shows that “Sox2 functions as a sequence-specific DNA sensor in neutrophils to initiate innate immunity against microbial infection.” This study was published in the 2 March 2015 issue of the Journal “Nature Immunology” [the number one journal in immnological research with an impact factor of  24.973] by Drs. Zusen Fan, Xia and others.

On the foundation of this interesting finding, Dr L Boominathan PhD, Director-cum-chief Scientist of GBMD, reports that: Immune enhancement therapy: Gremlin-1 increases SOX2 expression and promotes innate immunity against bacterial infection via down regulation of its target gene. This study suggests, for the first time, Gremlin-1, by increasing the expression of its target gene, it may : (1) increase the expression of Sox2; (2) increase the ability of Sox2 to recognize bacterial DNA in cytoplasm; and (3) promote innate immunity against bacterial infection. Together, pharmacological formulations encompassing Gremlin-1 activators” may be used to (1) enhance innate immunity against bacterial infection; and (2) promote bacterial resistance.
